Collaboration: How to Make Matcha Green Pancakes

If you’ve been following my journey, you will know by now that MBV loves a good old brunch. During the lockdown, I made a quarantine brunch and shared the recipe with you all. 

I was recently gifted, by Wellness Lab, a Matcha Latte Mix, and what did I do? I decided to make some matcha pancakes! So today I will be sharing with you how to make green matcha pancakes. 

What is Matcha?

I would say that Matcha is a finely ground powder some know it as processed green tea leaves. When added to food, it has a real taste of green tea. Matcha is also known, to be consumed, in East Asia.

So how does one make Matcha Green Pancakes! Check out the ingredients and steps below:

Matcha Green Pancakes:

Matcha Green Sauce: 

Decorations: 

  • Strawberries (optional)

For the Pancakes:

  1. Mix the flour, matcha, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. 
  2. Then add in the milk, egg and mix it all until combined and all clumps have disappeared. 
  3. Add a small tbsp of oil into a pan and heat over medium-low heat. 
  4. Add 2 to 3 spoonfuls (I use a ladle and fill half) of batter onto the centre of the pan. 
  5. Cook until small bubbles start to rise to the surface and flip over to the other side. 

For the sauce: 

  1. Break the white chocolate into small chunks and leave in a bowl
  2. Add half the heavy cream to a bowl and microwave them two together until melted. 
  3. Once melted mix together and one tbsp of Wellness Matcha Latte Mix. 
Optional: Cut strawberries and add to the pancakes once done! 

I hope you do decide to make this and enjoy it because it is tasty. You will feel like you have been transported to East Asia! 

Matcha Latte Mix ingredients: Ceremonial Japanese Matcha Green Tea, Peppermint, Maca, Moringa and 1 BILLION CFU of Probiotics!

How to Make Your Own Quarantine Brunch – Blog Brew Collab

Many of us are in quarantine right now and are missing out on brunch with the girls. I have a collab with a few other bloggers and have decided to show you how to enjoy a quick quarantine brunch.  

The ingredients for fluffy American pancakes: 

  • 1 cup (120g) all-purpose flour 
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar 
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder 
  • 1 pinch of salt 
  • 1 cup (240 ml) milk 
  • 2 Tablespoons melted butter or vegetable oil 
  • 1 large egg 

We all enjoy fluffy pancakes. I think they are also a great idea for a quarantine brunch. Follow these easy steps below:  

A Quarantine Brunch with MBV’s
  1. First, mix all the dry ingredients. 
  2. Then mix the wet ingredients in a separate bowl. 
  3. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ones and mix (do not overmix). 
  4. My secret: let the batter sit for a minute or two. It will allow the baking powder to activate and make your pancakes fluffy. 
  5. Heat oil or butter in a skillet and once hot, add a few tablespoons of the batter, making sure they don’t spread out to the outside. 
  6. Cook for a minute, until fluffy. Flip, and cook for another minute. 

The ingredients for toppings (this is optional)  

  • 1 tablespoon of maple syrup  
  • 2 bananas  
  • 10 strawberries 
  • 5 slices of bacon  

To make your pancakes a real quarantine brunch you have got to add the toppings. However, as stated above you can enjoy your pancakes without the extra toppings 

Tip: cook the bacon in the over at a low temperature, that way you can focus on everything else.  

The ingredients for the egg  

  • Milk (30 ml) 
  • 4 eggs  
  • A pinch of salt and pepper  
  • Butter for frying  
  1. Wisk eggs with milk together 
  2. Add salt and pepper  
  3. Fry in some butter for taste  
Please note the measurements specified are for two or more. You would need to increase the amount for more the one person!  

I hope you take some time to create your own quarantine brunches. There will certainly be more quarantine bunch recopies on MBV’s so be sure to subscribe for the next one.

A Day with MBV In Prague

Welcome to my first series in A Day with MBV in Prague.

Today’s A Day with MBV…will be in Prague! I enjoyed visiting Prague because it was a short flight; the journey to the airport was just the best (I met some of the group travellers who just had me cracking up from 5 am). It was a short but sweet trip, where I met some great people and was able to explore a city!

I know I know, it was only a day! The reaction my manager gave me when I returned to work was just priceless! But I’m about to show you what you can do in only one day! So read on!

So, what did I do in just one day??

We started by getting our travel cards for the day, which cost only £3.00 EACH!! That is cheap as chips!  We then got two different types of transport to where we were heading. This journey involved lots and lots of running, and catching buses and trains! Let’s say it didn’t seem like Google Maps was our friend that day!

Waf Waf Brunch  

First stop – We had brunch at WafWaf a place where you can build your very own breakfast with any base of your choice – crepe, waffle or American pancakes. Of course, I went for the American pancakes with chicken, cream, snickers (my fave chocolate) banana and syrup. What? The girl was hungry.  

The place was absolutely great thanks again to @traveleatslay who managed to secure us complimentary milkshakes. If you love a place that is Instagrammble then this place is for you. 

Cost – £3.44 

Wallenstein Palace Gardens 

Second stop – We then made our way to the Prague Castle and accidentally stumbled at the Wallenstein Palace Garden which was absolutely beautiful. The Wallenstein Palace Garden is a Baroque palace in Malá Strana, Prague, that used to serve as a residence for Imperial Generalissimo Albrecht von Wallenstein and now houses the Senate of the Czech Republic.  Another place for Instagram – check out a picture below.  

Cost – £0.00  

Prague Castle 

Third stop – We finally found the famous Prague Castle which was the longest walk ever! To make matters worse it was drizzling, and the walk was uphill – not two combinations I enjoyed. Once we were at the top I was happy to see the view before me.  Prague Castle is a castle complex in Prague, the Czech Republic, dating from the 9th century. It is the official office of the President of the Czech Republic. The castle was a seat of power for kings of Bohemia, Holy Roman emperors, and presidents of Czechoslovakia. This place is nice to take pictures for the view – check out pictures below. 

Cost – £0.00  

St Charles Bridge 

Fourth stop –  We then headed to the Charles bridge. If you live in London, you will know all the famous bridges we have across central London. The Charles bridge was built very differently to the other bridges I’ve seen before.  The Charles Bridge is a historic bridge that crosses the Vltava river in Prague, Czech Republic. It was built in 1357 under the auspices of King Charles IV and finished at the beginning of the 15th century. 

Cost – £0.00  


John Lennon Wall 

Fifth stop –  I had always wanted to get to the John Lennon Wall ever since I knew I was going to Prague.  I love street art and graffiti because they tell stories of a country. I think we were there for ages just taking pictures and boomerangs – I absolutely loved it! The Lennon Wall or John Lennon Wall is a wall in Prague, Czech Republic. Once a normal wall, since the 1980s it has been filled with John Lennon-inspired graffiti and pieces of lyrics from Beatles’ songs. 

Please note: This again was not an easy place to locate via google maps, luckily we were able to meet a nice local who kindly walked us to the wall and took pictures of us!

Cost – £0.00  

Dinner at Café Márnice 

Final stop – We headed over to Café Marnice where I had the famous Prague sausage with chips and salad; with a glass of rose. I like a little drink when I’m away on a trip!  

I can’t say I enjoyed this restaurant that much because they didn’t take card payment. It made me realise that living in London, you can take a lot of things for granted as most places have a card machine. Going to Prague reminded me that not everywhere is as technologically savvy as London as I had to get money out to pay for my meal – Lesson learnt.

Cost – £15.75

It is surprising what you can see in just one day if you plan it well. I hope you enjoyed my first A Day with MBV series.

My next one will be A Day with MBV In Berlin. Be sure to subscribe to my mailing list so you don’t miss out on my next post!
